Role of 12 S mitochondrial gene on dimorphism and coiling direction in benthic foraminiferal species Pararotalia nipponica
(Gondwana Geological Society, 2003)
Despite the extensive use of foraminiferal proxies for paleoclimatic reconstructions, the question how and why morphologic variations of foraminifera are regulated by climatic changes remains a mystery. The answer to such ...
Life spans of planktonic foraminifers: New sight through sediment traps
(The Palaeontological Society of India, 2003)
Determinig the life spans of planktonic foraminifera is vital in view of their increasing use for palaeoclimtic studies. Till date all the estimates about life span of planktonic foraminifers are based on the extrapolation ...
Foraminifers as indicators of marine pollution: A culture experiment with Rosalina leei
In order to develop a viable foraminiferal proxy for heavy metal pollutants, juvenile specimens of Rosalina leei were subjected to different mercury concentrations (0 -180 ng/l). Initially considerable growth was observed ...
Late Holocene changes in hypoxia off the west coast of India: Micropalaeontological evidences
(Current Science Association, 2009)
A study has been carried out to understand benthic foraminiferal and sedimentary organic matter characteristics under low dissolved oxygen conditions off the central west coast of India. Based on the strong correlation ...
Ammolagena clavata (Jones and Parker, 1860), an agglutinated benthic foraminiferal species - first report from the Recent sediments, Arabian Sea, Indian Ocean region
(Cushman Foundation for Foraminiferal Research, 2004)
The rare presence of the agglutinated foraminiferal species Ammolagena clavata is presented for the first time from the Recent sediments of the Indian Ocean region. This species has previously been reported in Recent ...
Benthic foraminifera as proxy for oxygen-depleted conditions off the central west coast of India
(The Geological Society of India, 2007)
In order to study the response of benthic foraminifera, especially the rectilinear bi- and tri-serial benthic foraminifera (RBF) to oxygen-depleted conditions from the Arabian Sea off central west coast of India, 103 surface ...
